are the valves adjustable? Today was the first time I had the engine cover open with the engine running and noticed the clickety clack.

I have had motorcycles and cars with solid lifters so I know the sound but didn't know if these had a maintenance schedule

Twin overhead cams are always noisier with followers rather than lifters.

My '83 5.0 Benz V-8 sounds like a thrashing machine but run like on fire. (with a SOHC even)
